From your address book, you have to select which individual number (work, cell, home) to transfer over to your SIM card. Scroll to a number, press the menu key and select "Copy to SIM..."

Note again that you can only transfer numbers individually as opposed to transferring an entire contact over as the SIM card can only handle individual numbers and not contacts.

Default Copy from Phone to Sim

I have the same question. My BB does not have the menu copy phone to SIM option. Is there another way?

I don't think there is. Are you sure you've scrolled down to a number? I don't think it'll have the option if you are simply at the contact list.

Default Phone to SIM Contact Transfer

I believe you are correct that there is no auto full contact transfer method. Guess I will have to go one by one.

Yes you have to do it one by one because SIM cards don't support entire contacts -- they only support one number at a time.
